the job. not only is he not qualified, you've got chuck hagel who he's trying to sell as a great infantry man. i love nurses, but they shouldn't be the head of hhs. we need qualified people with credibility with the other side. >> this whole thing's sort of this insider liberalism. >> right. >> it seems to me, ari, that's basically what jack is. he's an insider liberal, he's going to take his marching orders. you know, this administration runs everything from the oval office and president obama's ideology, which is a left wing ideology. i don't happen to share it. he won the election, i get that, but you just can't convince me that a jack lew or chuck hagel are first class appointments. they're not. nobody's going to buy that. >> how much time do i get to respond to jennifer's points? >> you get about 40 seconds. >> look, i think briefly on senator hagel, he was on the foreign relations committee, he spoke out about iraq, he spoke out about the surge, he has a record, some people disagree with his policies, i think he's imminently qualified, not only obviously because he served b

reason went ahead with his decision to nominate chuck hagel for secretary of defense. hagel's a republican, but he's been accused of anti-semitism toward israel and he's also soft on iran. >>> and epa regulatory menace lisa jackson finally resigning because president obama apparently will approve the keystone pipeline. that's the latest from a number of sources. and i say good riddance to her, but good for the keystone pipeline. here is a disgraceful story tonight. new reports that welfare cash is being spent on strippers, booze, and important shows. whatever happened to work requirements. and the battle everyone's waiting for in miami tonight, notre dame looks to win the national championship over obama. but in one way, the fighting irish may have already won. and last but not least, i'm going to tell you why i think a debt ceiling and government shutdown, bad idea. i'm going to show you a better way. the "kudlow report" begins right now. . >>> first up, amid allegations of anti-semitism and antiisrael sentiments, president obama nonetheless nominated former republican senator

twist his arm at all. >> we don't know that and can't know that. >> chuck hagel's not a centrist. east going to dismantle the department of defense. >> here's the problem with this conversation. it always amounts to size. and i know guys like to talk about size, but what about -- what is an effective use of dollars for the military that we need now? because if you even talk to guys who are boots on the ground, some of the money that gets spent by the bureaucracy of the department of defense isn't doing what they needed to be doing. so i think a guy who was an infantry man who fought in a war i think actually may have a better sense of what do we really need to be doing to make sure that we are building the army and have the capacities and the navy and the armed forces that we need for today not yesterday. >> mark simone, you think these cabinet appointments show him moving -- obama moving center or left? >> well, clearly to the left. and he has every right to move to the left. that's where he is. i see it as a move to mediocrity. 20 million people in this country and john kerry's

defense. leon panetta not a happy camper about that. his likely replacement, chuck hagel, a dod budget cutter as far as we know. i'm wondering how this whole exercise is going to affect national security. here now is retired u.s. army general barry mccaffrey, military analyst for nbc news. general mccaffrey, welcome back. about $55 billion this year. can it be cut without compromising our national security, sir? >> it certainly will be an inefficient way to run a railroad. for god's sake there's only seven months left in the fiscal year. so leon panetta will go shopping with 2500 investment accounts and try and pull stuff out, not people. too late to do that. so they've got to go to the defense industry and tell them look we're not buying that many items this year. it's a lousy way to defend the country. >> well i'm sure you're right about that. but looking at the longer term issue here, the sequester itself is a ten-year issue. here's a question from one of the things i read today. why do we have a $70 billion military budget in europe? do we really need all those bases in all those r
